After surfing continuously for 2 hours or more, Firefox stops responding. Occurs 
on any website, and page elements (links,buttons,etc) do not work. Status bar 
shows "Stopped". Closing and restarting Firefox fixes the problem until it stops 
responding again. Clean (re)installation does not solve the problem. Same 
problem also reported on various machines.
